Cute. Fighting over a girl. How very... male. (I remember 2 boys in grade school who started a “war” (all in good fun, of course... back when kids could still do that) over a girl that we enacted over the course of the entire year during recess. Good times.) Hopefully your girl will do the right thing and pick one (or neither), and stop the fight before it begins... Smile

I agree with Stryker. Cute scene. I got the same chairs and table sometime ago, although I really wanted the alternative (which was sold out).

They were being sold as alternatives A and B. This was A. B also had a table and two chairs, also wooden; the pieces were a bit more modern looking, the chairs had different back and arm rests, curved a bit like bow.

I can actually use that set for a simple diorama.

I want to create/set up my own weekly 1:6 diorama skit show.  Something like a 1:6 version of FIRING LINE where two 1:6 figures discuss the week's events or a current/relevant topic in the 1:6 hobby.  One would be an esteemed and knowledgeable host figure and the other would be a rotating weekly guest figure.

That sounds like an interesting idea. And unless it gets too controversial or political, something that might be fun to see here.

Mark, I think it had something to do with the fact that I was linking to the photo on the SSF board. I have downloaded the photo and have uploaded and linked to my Imgur account, so there shouldn't be a problem now.

Thanks for the heads-up!

I'll likely pre-order one (or two) as well. I skipped the first/original one from HT, but the 2.0 version looks damn good.

I still have the Sideshow version though.

I want to see the fight! Maybe the girl could fight the winner.

My latest purchase is a pre-order of the PopToys "The Holy Woman Knight". I did not realize this does not come with a body! Seems a bit expensive now. Still, I do love a gal in armour!

No body for Jeanne d'Arc?

Where did you read that?

It's listed in the specs for both versions, as copied from OneSixthKit's order page:

POPTOYS 1/6 EX019-A Saint Knight Charge version

List:
Female head with simulate hair
Short hairstyle head
Female body
Hands*4(two outstretched steel hands + two holding steel hands)

Clothes:
Brown cotton
Brown pants
Upper hauberk
Helmet
Gorget
Plate armor
Arm armors
Cuisse
Dark leather armed belt
Dark leather belt

Weapon:
Flag
Flagpole
Cross sword
Scabbard

Other accessories:
Black bracket




EDIT: I Googled the search terms you used -  PopToys "The Holy Woman Knight" - and found an Ebay listing that stated "Body and horse are not included", but that must be an error on the lister's part. PopToys list the body as included in their Facebook post.

I like the look of Mr. Z's animal range but have never bought any.

I pick up 1/6 dogs and cats for a few pounds when I see them at boot sales and flea markets, by companies such as Border Fine Arts, Country Artists, Sherratt and Simpson, etc.

The Mr. Z animals are pretty well done (my only complaint on this set -- the Chimp & Bulldog -- is that there is a small, round metal logo-like disc in the back of the chimp and on the belly of the dog; I don't recall them doing that on any of their other animals, but it's very annoying). It'll be interesting to see if they continue that practice on future releases.

The Lion, while exaggerated, is really cool (I actually bought two), and is one solid, heavy piece (weighs 5 pounds).

There can never be enough animals. I'd like to see more variety, though. Dogs & horses is starting to get old. More jungle animals would be awesome! Can you imagine how big a rhino or male silverback gorilla would be? Pretty unlikely they'd be made, or be big sellers, but it would be great.

Agreed, although before we go for quantity and variety, I wish we'd be offered some decent articulation. I was playing with the soft rubbery pig I showcased in the recent addition to the Useful Items thread, and was constantly thinking: what if this rubber was even softer and there was a TBLeague-type flexible skeleton or even armature inside?

Articulation would be pretty neat in a seamless animal, but much like my desire for more jungle animals, I think about all we'd get would be a horse (maybe). I would imagine the R&D would make the cost so high, very few would sell.

If we can't get articulation, I would like to see more... I guess you could call it -- personality in the animals. I like the lion and chimp, and that one pit-bull where it's lunging for an attack, because they are more expressive, rather then all the dogs that seem so stiff and lifeless; always standing perfectly straight like a show dog. Have one ear crooked, or the head tilted, or turned slightly, to give the animal the appearance of life, goes a long way in making them look less like a statue.

Stryker -- what you suggest (more personality) in the animal sculpts would be both a pro and a con, depending on one's needs (just like overly emotive human head sculpts). The only more or less failsafe solution would be to produce several different poses of the same figure, and make them available at the same time (together?) for a decent price.

Maybe it's because they're so used to adding that disclaimer for sets that they just did it automatically?

I received a reply from the seller which says that they checked and there is no body in the set so I have sent him/her another seller's listing. The seller's English is not perfect (not complaining - I have no Chinese languages!) so it may be that they did not quite understand what I was politely trying to ask. I will let you know what results from my latest message.

Kit's specs were taken from PopToys' own listing, which you can see on their Facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/poptoysofficial


It would be very strange to release her differently, unless the seller is intending to break her down and remove the body from the sale. Which would be a lot of work to sell a PopToys body which isn't too expensive to begin with. It does sound more likely to be a communication breakdown.
